A forest which is responsibly managed can produce timber indefinitely. By supplying furniture produced from certified timbers, we can help to ensure that the timber supply base can be maintained for the future. These timbers will guarantee timber for future generations.
The natural forest is a delicate ecosystem, which stores carbon and contributes to recycling of water, maintaining climate stability and protecting biodiversity. Conversion of natural forest to other uses is problematic and a matter of concern because such activities contribute to CO2 emission when the forest is burned. Contrary to this, wood which is based on sustainable forest management is CO2 neutral.
By safeguarding that the wildlife is maintained, good forest management ensures that the forest habitat, for both animals and plants, is protected. Species currently endangered, such as the western lowland gorilla or forest elephant, can continue to be afforded a habitat where they can survive and, hopefully, thrive in the future.
A forest which is responsibly managed also ensures the rights of local and indigenous people. Dialogue and direct involvement are essential elements to ensure that different stakeholder interests are taken care of. Respecting the lives and cultures of local and indigenous peoples ensures that their way of life, sometimes developed over centuries, can be maintained.
Good forest management ensures that the delicate forest ecosystem is maintained and thus the level of biodiversity is sustained.
As the public becomes more aware of the importance of protecting our environments they will inevitably demand more and more timber from sustainable sources. We are actively working with our suppliers to secure a steady supply of certified timber to satisfy future demand.
